|I loved your poem. It's particularly poignant right now as my mother-in-law (92 years old) is in cardiac failure. It's most likely only a matter of days. She's so small in that hospital bed.....

|Beautifully said -- and the thoughts so universal -- a woman who lived such a long life lived to see so many changes -- my mother is almost 97 - her cousin almost 98 -- they both say they lived at the best time ever! I hope your Mom felt the same. Susan|

|Thanks for this tribute to your mother. It is with regret that she's gone but she lived a long life. I lost my mother a few weeks before her 90th birthday and also wrote a poem to honor her life. Anayone that lives as long as your mother or mind did has lived a lot and seen a lot--laughter and grief. I wonder how they felt when they lost their mothers. My mother never talked about that. Thanks to AuthordDen, we get to write about how we felt.|

|Having just lost my mother in February 2008, I can sympathize and I was touched by your lovely sentiments. It is so hard to lose someone we love so much. I really don't think the tears ever stop. My condolences to you and your sister. Beautiful sentiment.|

|Thank you for sharing this. My mother passed away unexpectedly almost two years ago at the age of 67. I remember her reading us The Highwayman as well... My sister, brother and I just finished a book in tribute to my Mom. All proceeds from the sale of the book are going to Foyer de Sion, an orphanage in Haiti where seven of my children came from... Writing the book helped heal the pain of losing her in many ways...

|Dear Henry, it seems that I am late, but even now my thoughts are with you. No matter, after all, time is only a means of arranging things in a sequence. Perhaps fate is involved, but I lost my mother about the same time you lost yours. Like you, I felt the need to write (the poem Mother, then the novel The Gate). And even more surprisingly, you and I are practically the same age (but don't tell anyone, I feel just a bit younger every day). Thanks for sharing. You are not alone.
